I love genealogy because ...

MyHeritage recently ran a Facebook competition

“We asked all our Facebook fans to tell us just why they loved genealogy in the form, "I love genealogy because...", we then waited and watched the entries flood in until we lost count completely.

We had entries that were both inspiring and heart-warming and others that were a little strange, even disturbing.”

We at “UpFront with NGS” often get so caught up in trying to bring you the latest and greatest news about NGS, NARA, genealogy research resources and so much more, that it’s easy to lose sight of “why” we do what we do and what we “love” about doing it!

So, in the vein of MyHeritage … please tell us by commenting here or via FB (for those who see our posts via our FB feed) …
